Toys and Tots

Italian Photographer Gabriele Galimberti's photo essay Toy Stories is just so touching. In it, children all over the world show off their most prized possessions - their toys. Galimberti traveled the world for 18 months, photographing children from every walk of life. Her conclusion: "They are pretty much all the same; they just want to play." I find myself coming back to her website to analyze the pictures and to read her words and each time I do, I get misty-eyed. The sociology is fascinating, and the sentiment is heart-warming.

Wishing you lots of play this weekend.

There are so many great pictures on her website; I had a hard time deciding which ones to include. See the full series here
